    Michele Bachmann may have been under the control of a svengali advisor

    Angry Aide Says Bachmann Debate Coach Wouldn't Let Her Sleep with Husband - Politics - The Atlantic Wire

    Bachmann's former Iowa field coordinator Peter Waldron now tells BuzzFeed's Andrew Kaczynski that Bachmann's famous debate coach, Brett O'Donnell, had a "Rasputin-like" relationship with the congresswoman. Waldron said O'Donnell's power was so great that he forbid Bachmann from sleeping in the same bed as her husband while on the campaign trail.
    "Once she asked me to ride on the bus with her to pray. Brett's objection was so intense that for the good of the order, I followed the bus in my personal vehicle... On one occasion, she whispered to me, 'Peter, don't get off the bus no matter who tells you to get off.' Another time, her personal assistant told me, 'Peter, Michele does not want to you leave. Stay on the bus. Please pray for us.'"
    Does that make Bachmann the Tsarina?

    If you are going to make that connection - it would be Rasputin, not Svengali. Although Svengali is an apt description of the 'advisor'

    I'm missing the rumormill twist where Rasputin goes at it with Alexandra.

    Much as I find Michelle Bachmann an extremely abhorrent individual.

    I'm really not buying this story.

    I've not checked the link yet but my first impression is "When is his book published?".

    Edit: Not yet then. Maybe he's getting enough money selling his stuff to the media but I wouldn't bet against it.

    Maybe it had something to with the homosexual conversion efforts advocated by the Bachmans. The old tried and true "starting where your subject's mindset is" routine.

    Regardless, no one could fail to acknowledge the impact of this simply incredible scoop!

    If it involves Bachmann and its freaky, it's probably true.
